Song Description

This is a total restoration of this recording from 1971 and is featured on the new CD, "Beetles Are Coming". This song came from Chet's first CD, "Time Loop" and uses a very interesting tuning. The whole record is filled with songs based on unusual tunings and string configurations.

The vocalist has a beautiful voice. The melody is also beautiful. It is not simple so this means you must listen to the song many times so that you can memorize it. This is a credit to the song and keeps the song along the time interesting. You know the melody is beautiful, but you cannot remember it. So you must listen to the song again. I liked the guitar playing too. It is of the professional niveau. Summary : it is a fine song.

"Lonely Woman"
Lyrics and Music by Chet Nichols

I heard a lonely woman crying through the wall
To be alone can be a pleasure, but loneliness haunts us all
The woman strummed on silver strings
Sang songs of wonderful things
And of the joy that love brings
Her lover left and the loneliness stings
Out in the streets she looks over her shoulder
God, she looks so much older
She lets her hair rest quietly
She lets it down nightly
She wonders why it made her cry
After all the times that she's heard him lie
Oh, why, why, why
Oh, why, why, why
Well, the flags are flying upside down
From the crosses on the hill
The steps of the dancer
And the songs of waking
Are suddenly very still
Their nation of two, their sanctuary
Grew silver wings and flew away
Her brown eyes are red and gray and blue
The bond she dreamed of as a little daydreamer
The games of making up children's names
Her prince charming
Turned out to be very alarming
Oh, will her life
Will her life ever be the same?
Oh, there are so many noble men
With noble words to say
But, their words and their thoughts
Oh, they go in so many different ways
But, never in the same direction
No, never in the same direction
No, never In the same direction, no
I saw a lonely woman
Walking through the park
Leda and the swan made love on the lawn
So, we joined hands and took turns singing songs
The woman strummed on silver strings
Sang songs of wonderful things
And of the joy that love brings
Her lover left and the loneliness stings
She lets her hair rest quietly
She lets it down just for me
She lets it down every night
She lets it down for me
She wonders why her cry
After all the times she's heard him lie
Oh, why, why, why
Oh, why, why, why
Oh, why, why, why, yeah
